Bike Movie help?
#1
We have talking about songs, books, and movies on here, there is a movie that I remember a while ago about a guy who rode a long distance on a road bike. I want to say 70's 80's era (heck it could even be 60's) is when this took place. I just remember a scene where he is in a camper style rv? and his legs were shaking profusely from muscle spasms. He had a support team girlfriend driver of the rv/camper and driving me nuts is that is all I can remember. There was a reason he was cycling but geesh can't even remember that!

Breaking away about college kids refusing to grow up, one thinking he is Italian Smile.

American Flyers with young Kevin Costner (one of my fav stars). Excellent movie.

Gonna try and track this movie down I'm sure it has to be sold or rented somewhere. Also just for fun I'm gonna find Breaking away.

Breaking Away is required watching for cyclists. Classic. Watched it again with kids recently.

A bit out of context.. But this is worth watching...I don't know if any of you guys have seen this.. It's a British Council tutorial from Raleigh Nottingham bicycle plant...Some nice hand made & tough stuff.. The best part is women workers fixing tyres & tubes on rim in 50 sec...!!! That's worth watching.
